Avalanche climatology of the continental zone in the southern Rocky Mountains

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This study illustrates that variations in the avalanche character in the continental zone may, at times, resemble some less continental characteristics that are found farther west as a result of anomalous atmospheric circulation patterns. Results from cluster analysis show that some sites in the southern portion of the continental zone generally represent a less continental character. However, generalizations of how synoptic patterns govern avalanche climate variations also vary between different locations as a result of smaller-scale climatic controls that opperate over the region
